Rice Pasta

For those of us just starting to use rice pasta, if you put a spoonful of olive oil in the water, the pasta will not stick together so much.

Thanks for the tip. I have only tried rice pasta one time, when I was first diagnosed. I cooked it way too long so it was a little on the NASTY side! I will have to try it again and not overcook it. :)

ellcrys, does the sauce still stick to the pasta if you use oil in the water? I know that with regular semolina pasta, the sauce slides right off of oiled noodles. It might be different with rice pasta, though. I hope it is, because I often end up with pasta logs!

And I can't help sharing that my favorite brands of rice pasta are Tinkyada and Rizopia, because they are made with whole-grain rice flour and rice bran and they actually cook up al dente. I tried DeBoles and was thoroughly repulsed! It was slimy and flavorless, with a grainy texture. Those are the only brands I have tried. What are your favorites?

Hi ellcrys11,

Like Sarah, my favorite brand of rice pasta is Tinkyada for the same reasons. I regularly eat the organic spirals, penne and spaghetti. They all hold up well. I've never had any sticking problems. Just be sure to use enough cooking and rinsing water and, like Stacie said, avoid overcooking it. I rarely cook with oils but I love to add a drizzle of oil here and there at the table. A plate of pasta covered with marinara sauce, drizzled with olive oil, and sprinkled with fresh basil is soooooo yummy!

Good day, all - Toni

P.S. Cook rice pasta on a low heat for a better result. :)

The only brand I have found so far is DeBoles. The sauce did stick to the pasta.If you enough sauce on DeBoles, it will cover the taste. I will try find some other brand from somewhere.

Hey, ellcrys, I didn't mean to sound critical of YOU! I hope I didn't come across that way, but I can totally understand if I did--1:00 in the morning isn't my most tactful time of day! If you like DeBoles pasta, that's fine with me, and if you find something you like better, that's fine too! Happy hunting!

Personally, I recommend Quinoa pasta. I've tried Corn, rice, and something else that I can't remember at the moment...and they all had an odd taste to them. The Quinoa pasta is great, makes me forget that they aren't semolina.

Just had to throw in my 2 cents.

love,

Fil

I really like some of the Italian gluten free pasta's. Schar's is also wonderful. But my tastes must be changing because I've learned to like the corn pasta and at first I hated it. Also try the Mayacama mixes in a stir fry, they really add a nice touch to pasta or rice and speed up the process of dinner. Shirley

I absolutely agree with aramgard, Schars has been hands down the best pasta I have tried. I tried several varieties of rice pastas without any luck (couldn't get by the taste). Schars tastes exactly like regular pasta! I have tried several shapes by them too, Rigatti (looks like ziti), spaghetti, lasagna - they were all wonderful. They also have some crackers that are delicous too.

I'm with filititi. The quinoa pasta is great. I fed it to a bunch of non-gluten-free friends who loved it too.

No offense was taken. I wish that there were more choices close to where I live. If I can find any, I sure will try them. I think I may order some from Gluten Free Pantry. Any good suggestions.

Thanks bunches

I adore the Quinoa pasta. I did not like the Tinkyada (not sure I spelled that properly), and the corn pastas were a tad...icky. I've tried Glutano, Pastariso, and Pastato...and none were as good as Ancient Harvest.

These are cut and pasted from the Gluten Free Mall site:

I was really sad to have to give up my Annie's boxed mac and cheese. (it got me through colege.) I found one made by Pastarizo. the box makes it look disgusting, it looks all grey and nasty, but it is actually really good. (for your actual or inner child.)

Peace

I am interested to know where you all find these Pastas' Schars,-Tinkyada Rice, and Ancient Harvest. I am in an area where there are not many good Health Food stores, that carry gluten-free. Please help.

Thanks,

I'd like to know where to get other brands too.

So far, Mrs. Leepers Rice spaghetti is not too bad, Notta Pasta is okay.

I don't recommend Lundbergs rice pasta it has a funny flavor - I think.

i've had really good luck with bionaturae, to me it tastes just like the real thing. they are an italian company that makes both semolina and gluten free pastas. i ordered mine online.

i've also found that the best pasta for macaroni is plain rice noodle macaroni. you can get these at asian food stores.

http://www.tinkyada.com is their website. If there's no healthfood store in the area that carries it, you have two options: to bring in some information or a picture or whatever about the product and ask the healthfood store to stock it, or to order it from one of a multitude of sites that carry it. Since Tinkyada is a very common name when it comes to pasta, just the way Kinnickinick is for bread, you should be able to find it at almost any online shopping place for special diets or celiac.

    • They didn't suggest any probiotic support. Ultimately the side-effects of this drug stabilized approaching the end of the course of treatment, though after it was finished, I was perhaps a bit improved, but no profound symptom resolution for me. Darn! The search goes on.
    • Thankyou I have found that I became intolerant of dairy and having cut it out feeling better but if I come into accidental consumption the symptoms are similar to that of gluten but not as severe .. Patience ay ?
    • I checked the Gluten Free Watchdog (I subscribe) and did not find this  particular product, but found the company's oat bran flakes which did not list any gluten ingrediants, but barley was found in testing well over 20 parts per million.  I would stick with certified gluten-free cereals, personally.  I think it is "hit or miss" on grain products.    
    • It is normal for other intolerances to become apparent once you remove gluten. I don't know why, perhaps as the immune system is free'd from chasing gluten it finds new targets? A lot of coeliacs find they have to cut out dairy as well for example. It's certainly my number one culprit for skin issues.  It also can take time for removing gluten to have its full effect, as antibodies will remain in the body for up to 6 months. So the reaction could still be to gluten in a way. 
    • I did not re-test my antibodies for a full year after diagnosis but I think your daughter should be checked again in 6 months.  If she does have celiac, and I really am sure she does regardless of what this doc seems to think, they should decrease in 6 months.  If she is fast healer, they could potentially be in the normal range but it varies from person to person. She did show damage in her small intestine but at 4 years of age, damage would not have progressed to the point where this doctor could be convinced it is Celiac.  They set the bar way too high. Kind of silly to require you to damage her insides further to prove it to the AMA. I think she should go gluten-free, as you have stated, and re-scope her in 6 months to see how the original damage looks then. If it is gone, then maybe that would convince them. The 4 out 5 criteria is not done in kids because, I am convinced, of liability issues. They just do not want to get sued if by some small chance, they diagnosed someone who did not have Celiac.  I think the odds of that are pretty slim, when you think about it. Even with a misdiagnosis, eating gluten free will never harm anyone. But as children are minors and cannot legally make medical decisions on their own like adults can, that rule is out for them.
